    In a brilliant cross-promotional marketing move (Abe Lincoln, Linkin Park -- get it?), POWERLESS, the closing track from June 26th's LIVING THINGS, has been tapped for the ending credits of the upcoming Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter film. Chester has previously described the track as the album's only slow song, while ArtistDirect has likened it to something famed movie score composer John Williams would write. Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter opens in theatres on June 20th.

    Note: The video linked within the article is NOT the real version of POWERLESS. Please ignore.

    If there were no such things as leaks, and the only way to hear the album would be to wait until the 26th, I'd ALMOST be inclined to go watch this movie, just to listen to Powerless at the end credits...

    A ton of Linkin Park fans are going to be watching the end while everyone else is leaving.

    I just finished the book last night. Can't remember a damn thing about it aside from Abe attacking some dude that may not have been a vampire. Forgot if he was part of the conspiracy or just some poor bastard.

    The movie is about taking the lost years of Abe's life nobody knows about and making them about slaying vampires to fill up his life story. Like how his mom died has a vampire killed her in her sleep, and that's why he hunts them. When you think about it, it's not really that bad of an idea. Still it's werid and I won't see it. Even if it does have POWERLESS in it.

    The trailer for the movie makes it actually look pretty interesting, but for the sole fact that it's cashing in on the latest trend - vampires - I'll skip it. Maybe I'll watch it at home when it comes onto illegal sites I know absolutely nothing about :leo:

    On a half-serious note, neat combination for the Lincoln/Linkin pun, otherwise, meh.

    EDIT: @Mic, use spoiler tags, I could've gone without knowing his motivation in the movie, thank you very much.

    I heard it from previews and commerials on TV, I'd think people know about it. It doesn't spoil anything anyway.
